Disclosure: requires transit vehicle manufacturers disclose the number and quality of U.S. jobs.
Evaluation: provides a system of voluntary price credits and scoring to help evaluate the quality of proposals submitted under the plan.
Compliance & Implementation: contract and enforcement language that ensures transparency and accountability of U.S. jobs commitments on a contract.
President/Business Manager Luther Medina accepted the scroll on behalf of Local 105.  He was accompanied by Local 105 Organizer Willy Solorzano and International Organizer Manny Gonzalez.
